Wow, this is awesome! On other boards this thread would be afire with flames!
lol I am just now doing my prerequisites for my ADN here at the local Community College but am checking into the Rn to BSN program at a nearby University. It looks like there are a couple of extra prerequisites for the BSN that I can get done now at the CC. I spoke to some of the Nursing teachers, and according to them, out west there isn't all that much difference between ADN and BSN. I looked at the courses and I think I want more education before I go out there and start working as a nurse. I'm sure they cover some of it in the ADN program, but I don't imagine it would be as indepth as in the BSN, mainly due to time constraints.
I have no idea what I'd like to do when I graduate. I am really envious of some of you that KNOW! I'm excited about the possibilities out there! I THINK I'd really like HH or Hospice or possible LTC. I've spent a lot of time working and living with people with mental retardation and health issues and it's a blast, but I wish I knew more. I imagine that's what school is for?!
Thanks to everyone for such great information and support! I'd be lost without this forum!
